Why is the Flow of Data and Information Between OrganizationsImportant?
Particularly for complex products, a high proportion of manufacturing andassociated impacts occurs in the supply chain.
- Reduce temptation to offload dirty operations
- Manage and track environmental performance
Cost effective product end-of-life processing is challenging, particularlywith limited information.
Better access to knowledge, data, and information can stimulate newactivities.
- Technology transfer
- New material flow synergies
